OK moms is it just me or does it really bug you when other working moms say "you're sooo lucky to be able to stay at home!" I mean, I am! I know that, there's nothing I'd rather be doing than spending every day with my daughter, but its not "luck" it's a choice and it's sacrafices!
I could understand if this was coming from a mom who HAD to work, but somehow hearing a mom who lives in a big house with 2 cars and all the fancy things telling me I'm "lucky" to be ABLE to stay at home just bugs me.
I feel like saying its not luck its a choice! we have CHOSEN to live on ONE income in an apartment with ONE car on a strict budget SO I can stay home with our baby.
How do you guys feel when moms who chose to work outside the home tell you you're lucky??
